I seem to recall Toady stating somewhere that an experimental 64-bit build was in the cards soon.  That was on the same level as finishing plants and trees and adding job priorities, so it hopefully wouldn't be a year or two away in a major release.
Yeah, he mentioned it in the last monthly summary update IIRC.

Also I'd just like to point this out for anyone who is unaware, but this isn't needed on Mac or Linux versions of DF, since they have never suffered from the 2 GB limit that microsoft imposed long ago, and as such will use more than 2 GB just fine with the normal version.

IIRC, Toady One said that 64 bit version is one of a list of things he considers doing soon, not that he is doing it now or even that he is committed to doing it.

Does this still works with the current version?

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?

This will (AFAIK) work with ANY 32 bit Windows program, so yes.

If anyone is having trouble with the download (that is now super old) you guys can try this instead: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/large-address-aware.112556/

That download is for DF v34.04, OldGenesis is now in DF v44.12 which has major changes in the code.
I suggest you use the link from the post above yours
http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/large-address-aware.112556/
to get the program that made the download in the first place. Grab the first or second attachment depending on whether your computer has .NET Framework v4.5(then grab the second) or not(get the first). Use the program as directed.

However successfully making DF use more RAM probably won't help with slowdown because most of it is caused by CPU limitations.
